- Wedding: October 2010
Something is wrong with people. HA!
We mailed out 60 invites for a total of 150 people (it changed from the original mailing). After having to explain to several people that their “1” means just them; not an additional guest. And that no, they can’t invite Cousin Fill-in-the-Blank. And that no, we don’t know who else is driving…
My cousin invited his mother (related to my father via marriage and who I have NO relationship with); but I decided not to fuss because their 2 oldest kids will be away at college so we’re still -1 for their family. My aunt invited her daughter and 3 grandkids which I haven’t said anything yet because that came through the grapevine; I will be calling her tonight. My uncle sent back a blank reply card but wrote his phone number on it. 🙂 And a friend who is getting married in September (!) didn’t reply yet chided me yesterday about not returning my card yet to their wedding (!). Their rsvp date is like Sept 1. I was purposely holding it to see if they would rsvp on time for mine! That’s wrong, I know :-O
We have 63 confirmed guests. This makes me pretty happy. However there are maybe 8-10 that are almost certain to be “yes’s”. We wanted under 75 and I was secretly hoping for closer to 50-55. We’ve contacted some people twice with not response either way, so we added to them to the not attending list. We still plan on sending our “Sorry you can’t make it!” email next week.
Sigh….I’ll be glad when this wedding is underway so I can relax! :-p
